Band reduction for disabled people

If you or somebody you live with is disabled, you may be entitled to a reduction in your council tax. If a reduction is granted your council tax bill will be reduced to match that of a property one band lower.

To qualify for the band reduction the property must provide one or more of the following features essential to the wellbeing of the disabled person:

  • a room (but not a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory) which is mainly required for meeting the disabled person’s needs, and is directly linked with the disabled persons disability - for example a room used especially for kidney dialysis treatment
  • an additional bathroom or additional kitchen for meeting the needs of the disabled person
  • sufficient floor space for a disabled person who has to use a wheelchair around the home

If you do not already receive this reduction and think you may qualify for it, email
